A Lost Loved One (submitted by Candi Phillips)

There's something missing in my home,
       I feel it day and night,
I know it will take time and strength
       Before things feel quite right
But just for now, I need to mourn,
       My heart - it needs to mend.
Though some may say it's "just a pet"
       I know I've lost a friend.
You've brought such laughter to my home,
       And richness to my days ...
A constant friend through joy or loss,
       With gentle, loving ways.
Companion, pal, and confidante,
       A friend I won't forget,
You'll live for always in my heart,
       My sweet, forever pet ...
